Default Summer Ale Clone Anyone?

I've just about got all my AG setup together, but not quite yet. I want to make a brew to take with me on vacation in 6 weeks. I'd like to make something along the lines of Sam Adam's Summer Ale. It's an American Wheat Beer with a subtle lemon flavoring. It reminds me of iced tea. I'm going to need to make this with extract. Anyone have any ideas?

This worked out pretty well for me - it's not in the recipe, but I also added some Grains of Paradise. I would sub out the 2-row and pale malt with regular DME and the wheat with wheat DME.

Default Hey Evan

How close to Sam Adams Summer Ale was this. I've converted this to Extract. I substitued 5lbs of Light DME for the barley. Steeping 1lb of wheat and 1/2lb of Crystal malt for the rest. I've got bittered orange peel, lemon peel, and seeds of paradise. Do you have any suggestions for quantities?
